Community Happening's

Let's talk about our new and improved night life... first we have "Ocean " tuesdays at Splash, This party is very cute, I havn't frequented it as often as I would like because of that lil' thing I have called a day job, but the times I have gone I always have a great time...

Now thursdays have been on lock for the last couple of years now by none other than the Nathan Williams "SPRUNG" party, as many of you may have heard Sprung has a new home at 579 Sixth Ave. bet 15th and 16th Streets in Chelsea & may I say It's like a rebirth of the original Luke and Leroys vibe.
I had a ball, it's a very laid back atmosphere and the patrons had such energy (I also noticed that the new Chelsea location drew a more diverse crowd and it was cool how everybody related to one another),.
The kidz were out to have a good time and that they did... It was'nt even 10:30pm and the house was damn near packed with sexy brothas of all shapes, sizes and colors ready to dance there lives away, DJ's Poison Ivy & M.K. did there thing as usual, the bartenders mixed the Hell out of my Kamikazii's (So excuse any typo's you may run across in reading this article... It's the bartenders fault, LOL).
Nathan is always such a sweet host, Miss Erica was in the house (did'nt yall just miss her, I know I did) and it was just a great vibe... Plus the staff was very welcoming, from security to the coat check, to the bartenders. Great Party all the way around... This is another party I will be at more times than not.

Saturday's belong to the one and only "Langston's", This is one of the hottest saturday parties I've been to in a good while...

"Triple S" A Total SSSuccess

The Triple S Shoot /Fashion Show was a complete success... Local talk shows were on hand conducting interviews (I'm dying to see how my interviews turned out), Photographers & Paparazzi were flashing away doing what they do best, The Red Carpet was an experience, The Village Voice promoted the event and the attendee's at the event read like a never ending list of who's who.

Some of those in attendance were, Myself of course "Maurice Runea" one of the designers debuting their clothing line, Nathan "7" Scott, Dwight O'Neal who was a major player in putting together this event, "The Living Legend" Tyra Allure Ross was the hostess for the evening looking faboulous as always, J.R. from the newly released independent film "Four Letter Word" and the previously released "Slutty Summer" (No they are not porn's, LOL), Sherry Sheppard from "The View" was there, author of gay erotica Nathan James, cast memebers from the show "Christopher Street", Lee Soulja, UNeQ Magazine, Baron graced the nite with his flawless performance as did Brooklyn's very own Shorty Roc, the rap duo Rebel Starr, Columbia recording artist Jesse O, Celebrity/ documentary photography DexStar G, Nyabel from "The Janice Dickinson Show" and Smoov, co-host of MTV's "Dances In The Hood"... Just to name a few...
A special shout out goes to the other designer of the evening Mani Chanprasith, Her denim jeans are off the hook... You know that dark raw denim we love and can't find... Well guess what? Mani's got em'.

Dwight O'Neal deserves a special Thank You and a standing ovation for pulling this event sucessfully together... Great Work, Job Well Done!
